Creating a safe and healthy environment for our students is important—that's why it's also our mission to successfully prepare you to go out and do the same as a school nurse.

What You'll Study

The School Nurse master's program opens the door to a variety of opportunities for your career. You will be ready to work in the clinical practice speciality of school health, utilizing advanced practice nursing roles that you'll take away from the program.

Your career as a school nurse will be one of importance to the educational system you serve. You'll be the first line of defense against diseases, respond to incidents within the school, make it possible for students with chronic health conditions to attend school, and promote and create a healthy environment for students.
